Game 2 of the doubleheader was a pitcher’s duel between the Lady Govs (13-14, 2-2 OVC) Sidney Hooper and the Bruins Brittanie Albright, as both carried shutouts into the sixth inning.

But Belmont (7-16, 1-3 OVC) broke the scoreless deadlock, with Jessica Wilson reaching on a one-out single to right-center field and scored all the way around from first base on a double to right-center by Kat Hollingsworth.

Vinchenza DiBenedettoBut Austin Peay answered right back with Lauren de Castro getting on base via a one-out walk and score the tying run on a double to center field by Vinchenza DiBenedetto, who advanced to third base on the throw home attempting to cut down de Castro.

Three pitches later, DiBenedetto would score what turned out to be the winning run when she raced home following a low, outside pitch from Albright pitch that couldn’t be stopped by Bruins catcher Kim Johnson, resulting in a wild pitch.

Belmont would get a runner on in the top of the seventh inning, but Hooper was able to pitch around it for the 2-1 victory.

Laurel BurroughsHooper (3-2) got the win, permitting six hits and one earned run while striking out five and walking one.

Albright (2-7) took the loss, giving up six hits and two earned runs. She also walked two and struck out four.

Laurel Burroughs led Austin Peay with two hits while Jordan Daly had two hits for Belmont.

In the opener, the Lady Govs would use two big innings to post the come-from-behind victory.

Trailing 2-1 heading into the bottom of the third, Austin Peay loaded the bases with one out on an infield single by Marissa Lake, a double by Kayla Davidson and a walk to de Castro.

After the Bruins recorded the inning’s second out, Burroughs drew a walk, forcing in Lake with the first run. Kristin Whitmire followed with a single that scored Davidson and de Castro.

But a bad throw to third by Belmont’s catcher allowed Burroughs to score to make it 5-2 Austin Peay.

The score would remain that way until the bottom of the sixth inning when Austin Peay would tack on three more runs, two coming on RBI singles by Lake and Davidson and a third off a Belmont error.

Marissa LakeLake, Davidson and Burroughs all had two hits in the opener.

The Bruins scored twice in the top of the seventh inning on a RBI single by Wilson and a sacrifice fly by Hollingsworth, but that was as close as they would get with de Castro getting Mia Vierra to ground into a 6-4-3 double play to end the game.

Wilson led Belmont with three hits while Ashley Hammer recorded two.

Belmont opened the game by jumping out 1-0 on a home run by Wilson in the top of the first inning with de Castro matching the homer with an opposite-field blast in the bottom of the second.

Kayla DavidsonThe Bruins took their final lead in the top of the third inning on a double steal, with Kirbie Ferrell scoring on the back-side of the double steal.

Picking up the win was de Castro, who improves to 8-5 on the season, while Taylor Moon (3-5) took the loss.

Austin Peay returns to action noon, Sunday, hosting Tennessee State in another key OVC doubleheader at Cheryl Holt Field.
